San Antonio search and rescue crews continue to look for a man who reportedly fell off a boat in Braunig Lake Sunday and never surfaced.

Officials said a man and a woman were in a boat when it malfunction and starting going in circles, throwing both of them overboard.

"Both subjects did not have life jackets on. We can't stress the life jackets (enough). Please put your life jackets on when you're out here boating," said Capt. Michael Morse with the Game Warden's office.

According to Morse, the boat malfunction appeared to be in the steering cable.

The woman was rescued by a nearby kayaker, but did sustain a minor arm injury.

Morse said crews planned to continue the search for the man through the night Sunday. The man and the woman had not been identified as of 10 p.m. Sunday.
